FAQ

  • Who can benefit from going to therapy?
    Literally any couple or individual can benefit from going to therapy. There is this misconception in our society that therapy is only for certain people and that if you go to therapy it means you have somehow failed. Nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, therapy is a proactive way to address concerns both in your relationship and individual life so that you can discover a life that brings you joy.
  • What is the process to get started in therapy?
    To start, please reach out by phone or email to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation. During the phone consultation, you'll have the opportunity to let me know a little bit about your desire for therapy as well as ask any questions you may have. After this, if you feel that I would be a good fit for you or you and your partner(s), we will coordinate a date and time for the first appointment. Intake paperwork will emailed to be completed before the appointment (ideally at least 24 hours before). Once the intake paperwork is submitted, your appointment will be entered and you will receive a reminder (if telehealth, the reminder will include the Zoom link).
  • Where do I go for my therapy appointments?
    At this time, I am offering in-person therapy to couples and individuals at my office in Bloomfield, New Jersey. Additionally, I am able to see couples and individuals virtually across New Jersey and Florida. If we are meeting virtually, you will receive a notification with your unique link the day before your appointment.
  • How much does therapy cost?
    My self-pay fee for couples therapy is $200 per 90-minute session. My self-pay fee for individual therapy is $150 per 50-minute therapy session. Couples may also choose to be seen in a 50-minute format if finances are a concern. Please see question below if you are interested in using your health insurance to pay for therapy.
  • Can I use my health insurance to pay for therapy?
    I am an out-of-network provider. This means I can provide clients with a superbill to submit to their insurance companies for partial reimbursement using their out-of-network benefits. Reimbursement eligibility for couples therapy will be discussed at the first session.
  • What can I expect at the first session?
    The first session will be an initial assessment to discuss either your individual or relationship history and needs for therapy. During this first session, you or you and your partner will have the opportunity to see how therapy will work, review office policies, privacy and confidentiality, as well as determine whether or not we are a good fit to work together.
  • How long does a therapy session take?
    Individual sessions are typically scheduled for 50 minutes and couples sessions are typically scheduled for 90 minutes. Most clients come weekly at first to gain momentum and maintain continuity. This will be discussed during the first session to come up with a scheduling plan that you or you and your partner feel comfortable with.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    This depends completely on what you are looking to accomplish in therapy. Some couples or individuals may attend therapy weekly for months/years while others may attend only a handful of sessions. For most circumstances, 3 months tends to be the minimum amount of time to really implement meaningful change. With that said, couples therapy tends to be shorter term than individual therapy.
